  • FAQs about our Property for Sale in Scotland

    Buying property in Scotland is considered more affordable than in some other parts of the UK, as the average price of a Scottish house is lower than the UK average. This average is affected by many factors, including the prices of property for sale in Scotland’s respective capitals and the stability of income in each area.

    The transfer of ownership of property is a legal process, so it is necessary to see a solicitor when you decide to sell. From the examination of title deeds in the beginning, to the conclusion of the conveyancing of your new house, our team of legal and property experts at Watermans have the legal and conveyancing experience to answer all your questions.

    Your first step will always be to contact your estate agent or solicitor. Once you have contacted us, we will take you through the necessary steps, including getting the home report and advising on your Mortgage Agreement in Principle.

    Sooner than you might think. The average time to complete the property transfer in Scotland, from the date the bid is accepted, is approximately eight weeks, which is quicker than the UK average. This will also depend on how quickly you are able to vacate your previous property, so it can vary.

    As much as the market can be tricky when buying property in Scotland, so is waiting too long when you simply need to move. Waiting for the market to stabilise is a luxury that many simply cannot indulge in. We recommend that you contact us for clear, tailored advice about the best time to buy houses for sale in Scotland.

    A deposit is usually paid to the house seller, which we will transfer to the seller’s conveyancer on the date of the exchange of contracts. The deposit for houses in Scotland for sale is approximately 10% of the total purchase price of the property. Sometimes, you may have scope to negotiate this, which is where it helps to have Watermans property solicitors in your corner.
